Animal “Rights” Extremists Attacking North Carolina’s Hunting Heritage

Friday, April 17, 2009
 
Several bills have been introduced in North Carolina that are strongly supported by the anti-hunting Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).  This organization is promoting similar anti-hunting bills throughout the United States, and North Carolina is one state HSUS has targeted as a priority. 


NRA is working closely with several groups that support the interests of dog owners that use dogs for hunting, to defeat bills designed by HSUS to attack virtually all dog owners and dog breeders.  Three bills-- Senate  Bill 460, House Bill 460, and House Bill 733 -- target dog breeders, creating a new classification of "commercial breeder," along with licensing and operation standards promoted by HSUS.  Two bills-- Senate Bill 695 and House Bill 626 -- create restrictions on how responsible dog owners may keep their animals by imposing onerous guidelines on tethering.  Finally, three bills-- Senate Bill 515, Senate Bill 739, and House Bill 1253--would prohibit the licensed hunting preserves used for the hunting of coyotes and foxes using dogs.  These preserves, which are currently regulated under North Carolina law, provide a traditional and common means for training hunting dogs.

It is imperative that you contact your legislators TODAY and urge them to work with NRA and groups like the North Carolina Sporting Dog Association (NCSDA), the North Carolina Federation of Dog Clubs (NCFDC), and the American Kennel Club (AKC), to ensure that the radical agenda of HSUS is rejected.

Also, please contact the following House and Senate Leaders, and urge them to support responsible hunters who use dogs in their hunting activities:


Senate Leadership

State Senator Marc Basnight (D-1), President Pro Tem of Senate
(919) 733-6854
Marc.Basnight@ncleg.net

State Senator Tony Rand (D-19), Rules Chairman in the Senate
(919) 733-9892
Tony.Rand@ncleg.net

State Senator Bob Atwater (D-18), Chairman of Senate Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources Committee
(919) 715-3036
Bob.Atwater@ncleg.net

House Leadership

State Representative Joe Hackney (D-54), Speaker of the House
919-733-3451
Joe.Hackney@ncleg.net

State Representative Hugh Holliman (D-18), Majority Leader in the House
919-715-0873
Hugh.Holliman@ncleg.net

State Representative Bill Owens (D-1), Rules Chairman in the House
919-733-0010
Bill.Owens@ncleg.net

State Representative Arthur Williams (D-6), Chairman of House Wildlife Committee
919-733-5906
Arthur.Williams@ncleg.net

Finally, S460 and H733 could be heard in committee as early as next week.  Please contact the members of the Senate Commerce Committee for S460, and the members of the House Agriculture Committee for H733, and urge them to work with NRA, NCSDA, NCFDC, and AKC to protect the interests of responsible dog owners.  Contact information for the Senate Commerce Committee can be found by clicking here.  Contact information for the House Agriculture Committee can be found here.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

As the South becomes more "civilized" with the influx of northeast liberals who f'd up their states economies and are now moving down here to mess up ours, this type of thing is becoming more and more common.

Their need to enforce their "enlightened" views on us hicks dontcha' know. Without their help we're unable to walk and chew gum at the same time.

Similar things are occuring here in Georgia and in Florida. But, I'm not going to jump on the Yankee bashing bandwagon. The reason being that WE who are FROM HERE are ALLOWING this crap to happen. Greed knows no geographic boundry.

Under the guise of PROGRESS we're selling our soul and heritage not to the devil, but to the highest bidder.

Even worse are those who are from here that want to stop dogs being used to hunt deer, hogs and bear. They see it as infringement on their right to have "quiet" areas where they grow their giant bucks under farm type conditions but call it Quality Deer Management. I'm not knocking QDM, I am knocking the a-holes who are so blind and selfish about killing a big deer over a 40 acre planted field and say it's sporting, while calling the use of dogs for deer an abomination worthy of prison sentence on Devil's Island. They're to blind and selfish to see that ending one type of hunting will spread to ending ALL types of hunting.

I believe the word is hypocrite.
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

No offense Ray, but that's exactly the attitude WE DON'T need!  Apathy is one of the reasons that our freedoms have been restricted as much as they are.  100 years ago, no one in their right mind would have thought that we would currently have the gun restrictions and loss of hunting seasons that we currently do.

Apathy is something that we can't afford anymore!

You make a good point there especially since the citizens dont get to directly vote on the issue. In the end its up to the politicians and they have selective hearing so a lot of people need to call and mail those folks so it won't get swept under the rug.
